Coil for depth on a Eureka Gold


Recommended Posts

I have been reading a lot on coils and to be honest I am a little confused. I get the impression that the bigger the coil, the deeper it goes. But on the other side of that token, I have also heard that a bigger coil for my Eureka is not going to give me any more depth. Unfortunately, I spent a lot of money last year on guns that I never use, long before I got into prospecting, and now that I want to get rid of the guns to help fund one of the GP or GPX model Minelab's, I can't seem to find buyers for them. So I am stuck having to use the VLF detector for now. It is a good machine, but obviously I need to step up into the PI domain to really have a chance at finding anything decent at depth.

So are there any suggestions for a coil that will give me a little more depth without losing TOO much stability? Thanks in advance.

Try a Coiltek 15-inch Double-D. - Terry

The only bigger coil that will work for that unit is a Coiltek 15" DD WOT coil

I have one for my unit its a great coil but keep in mind that a larger coil on a VLF unit will never give you the depth of a PI machine.

my advice to you is to save and find a older used PI unit, this is what I have done.
